Best of the MCU Super Cut Trailer

If you’re not following CLS Videos on YouTube, you’re missing out on some truly fantastic supercuts.  Today, in honor of Captain America: Civil War hitting stores, we offer up CLS’ supercut of the best of the MCU.  This seven minute trailer incorporates, I believe, every character in the MCU introduced to-date, including some from Doctor Strange (which won’t even open until November.  It’s a celebration of all Marvel Studios has done to create this shared cinematic universe and bring to the screen something Marvel fans have loved about the comics for decades. From Issue #1 (Iron Man) to the upcoming issue #14 (Dr. Strange), here’s the very best of the MCU.

POLL Results: Best MCU Villain

August’s poll asked the question, “Who’s the best baddie so far?” when it comes to the 13 films and four TV series that have so far made up the Marvel Cinematic Universe.  Marvel bucked the established trend in comic movies before Iron Man, which was that the villain was the centerpiece of the film and the hero’s journey was shaped by their adversary.  Marvel’s films and series are very much hero-centric.  The readers had no doubt as to whom the top villain was.  Tom Hiddleston’s god of mischief was the star of Phase One of the MCU, and continued to expand his character in Phase Two, and I’m sure will have an impact in Phase Three both in Thor: Ragnarok, but in the Infinity War, as well.

Top 5: Avengers Most Likely to Die in Civil War

Captain America: Civil War, Captain America, Iron Man

War is coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as we are months away from the next installment in the series – Captain America: Civil War.  In case you haven’t attended a movie within the last six months, here’s the trailer to get you to speed:

There WILL be casualties in Civil War.  We know this from Marvel and we know that multiple death scenes have been filmed with multiple characters to keep us all confused.  That being said, I think there will be a huge death, and probably a supporting character death in the film.  The supporting character cast at Marvel is so large know that you could speculate endlessly (though my money would be on William Hurt’s Thunderbolt Ross unless they plan on bringing the Red Hulk into the MCU any time soon).  If you have not read the graphic novel, or know nothing about the story, this is going to get spoilery, so bail. Last warning.  Here are my top 5 most likely candidates for a big death: Continue reading Top 5: Avengers Most Likely to Die in Civil War

Ant-Man Blu Ray Release Date and Details!!

Disney and Marvel have released the details of special features the Ant-Man Blu Ray which will be hitting stores on December 8th (available digitally November 17th).  No Marvel One-Shot again, which is a disappointment.  Those little one-shots were getting to be worth the price of the blu ray alone.  The last one pretty much swayed my opinion on Iron Man 3 from “waste” to “ok”.  Ant-Man was a nice surprise, given the turmoil in its production and it’ll be fun to see how they did the size-changing chaos that made the film another unique entry in the MCU.  Details on the disc features below from comingsoon.net.
